Title: The Teacher's Billionaire
Author: Christina Tetreault

Callie Taylor's life is turned upside down when she learns the truth about her birth following the death of her mother. Not only is her father alive, but he's none other than presidential candidate Senator Warren Sherbrooke.

Billionaire and confirmed bachelor, Dylan Talbot, is devoted to his family. When his stepfather Warren Sherbrooke receives a letter from a past love telling him they have a daughter together, Dylan is instantly suspicious. In order to keep the media vultures away and protect Warren's political aspirations, Dylan convinces Warren to let him handle the situation.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to admit I enjoy a good romance, and this qualifies as a pretty good romance, I would say.  I can identify with Callie since she is a teacher (and so am I).  I cannot imagine how the news she heard would change my life, and it was amazing to see how it changed hers.  I don't think I would have responded too well to the news either.  I might even tend to say that Callie was very similar to me in personality, so I easily identified with her.

Dylan had everything going for him.  And the fact that he was British made him even more charming to me.  I loved the interactions between the two--I would have even loved more banter because it was quite witty at times.  He was the perfect gentleman and just your all-around nice guy.  I often felt like I wanted to just take Callie by the shoulders and ask her why she was being so difficult.  But then, I can understand.  I probably would have reacted and thought very much the same thing if I were in her position.

Sometimes the story was a little surreal to me and seemed to be working out too well.  Yes, it was even a little cheesy at times, but the romance was fantastic!  I was glad that the sex scenes were not detailed.  I wish there had been none, but at least a lot was left to the imagination!  I often do not like intruding on character's bedroom scenes.  I was also pleased that the profanity was incredibly mild.  Sure, I could have done without it, but I cannot say I found it overly offensive.

I read at the end of the book that the author was planning a second book about one of the lesser characters, Jake.  I think I would like to watch out for that book.  The author has an easy-to-read style, and she easily switched back and forth between points of view.

If you like romance, this book is for you!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

About the Author
I wrote my first story with characters similar to those in the Sweet Valley Twins books at the age of 10
on my grandmother's manual typewriter. As I got older my stories and characters became more mature.
During my freshman year at UMass Dartmouth, I read my first romance novel and fell in love with the
genre. I have been writing romance ever since.
Today I live with my husband, three beautiful daughters and two dogs in Massachusetts. Whenever I
have a free moment you'll find me either reading a romance novel or working on my most current story.

     Slowly she dropped her arm back down and turned around expecting Dylan to step back.  He didn't move.  Rather he reached out to brush a stray piece of hair off her face.
  As if on autopilot Callie closed her eyes as his fingers skimmed down her check and neck to her shoulder.  With the weight of his hand resting on her shoulder, she waited not sure what to expect.  And then she felt just the slightest bit of pressure as his lips settled over hers.  Everything seemed to stop.  The only things she was aware of were his callused hand on her shoulder and his lips on hers.  The kiss was gentle.  Tender.
  This shouldn't be happening.  Not with this man.
  Even as her brain protested, Callie's body responded.  She wanted to feel his hard-muscled body pressed up against hers.  Even though she knew she should break contact, she took a step closer and rested her hands on his wide shoulders.
 Dylan was still staring out the window twenty minutes later when he heard Callie enter the room.  Turning to watch her, an unfamiliar feeling of contentment settled over him.  Having her here in his apartment just felt natural.  Reaching for her hand he tugged her close.  “Have a nice nap?”
  Callie nodded.  “You should have woken me,” she replied just before yawning.
  “Obviously you needed the rest.”  He pointed out laughing.  “Besides I plan on keeping you up tonight so I figured letting you sleep now was in my best interest.”
  She blushed at his comment, and he couldn't resist the urge to kiss her. Dylan forced himself to pull away before they ended up in his bedroom again. 
  He'd only intended a quick kiss.  Yet once again he got carried away.  It happened so easily with her.  It wasn't something he was used to.  He always remained in control, no matter who he was with.  Yet with Callie all his control went not only out the window but down the street to the next block, and Dylan kept forcing himself to not think about why.
